MILWAUKEE - Cubs President Theo Epstein revealed earlier tonight that Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer conducted a phone interview with Boston Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale about the job.
"We know each other so well that we don't really need to go through the process," Epstein said. "Jed actually interviewed him, because he hasn't been with him for a couple of years. I know him really well. DeMarlo is a great coach and grew up in Chicago and it was worthwhile hearing from him."
